Transform your time in the kitchen
Knife skills are life skills. For lovers of Asian food, your ability to cook your favourite dishes is dictated by how well you yield a knife. Sushi, sashimi, dumplings, stir-fries, and homemade noodles are all a slice away.
Join us in mastering the blade through slicing, dicing, chopping, mincing, and Japanese cuttings. We will finish the class by making refreshing and wholesome Asian salads with what’s been cut. Let's slice through your kitchen time.

I attended Knife Skills course. The course caters for both beginners and those who have been using kitchen knives for some time. We spent significant time actually using our knives learning to be more efficient and many time saving trips and tricks. Rany is an excellent teacher and hostess. Our lesson culminated in a mouth-wateringly delicious Asian style meal that was produced with the various ingredients we sliced and diced. I highly recommend Umami Food Studio, and will definitely be attending Rany's other classes.
We spent the day, learning about knife skills in the kitchen. From how to hold your knife, sharpening and cleaning your knife, to slicing sashimi, taking skin off salmon, julienne carrots etc. It was an amazing experience and I can strongly recommend going to any of Rany’s classes!!!!
Even though you think you know how to use your chef’s knife, you don’t! Rany focuses on how to hold the knife, position your fingers to avoid injury, how to place your body, shoulders and arms. It is important to RELAX! We used dough to simulate how to cut sashimi and we learnt how to cut the main vegetables used in cooking including the popular “julienne” and “chiffonnade”. Finally, we finished with the most delicious meal using all the expertly cut vegies. I learnt so much and feel more confident to try these skills at home. Thanks for your professional class, Rany.
I attended this course as the original recipients had some unexpected engagements, and their loss was my win! The course is in-depth; covering choosing a good knife, how to hold a knife, how to do different cutting techniques safely, the uses of your different cuts, how to improve food safety/kitchen hygiene and even a little at how to look after your knife. It's not for the faint of heart, (I have a callous forming!) but if you want to have a wonderful time, eat delicious food and learn useful skills, I recommend this course! Rany is a wonderful teacher, she's stern yet encouraging!
The knife skills course exceeded my expectations. I learnt how to hold a knife, how to stand, how to make cutting easier and safer and much much faster. Simple things but with w our sous value to me. Rany is super knowledgeable, deeply committed and organised which I find inspiring. I'd I have done every one of her courses by now if I lived in the same province. Highly recommended⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
